Museum of the New South presents the nation’s most comprehensive interpretation of the history of the American South from the end of the Civil War until today. The centerpiece of Levine Museum is the award-winning exhibit cotton fields which take visitors on an interactive tour of the past 140 years in the American South from the end of slavery and the struggle for integration to the legacy of cotton farming.

When you first walk into the Levine Museum of the New South the first thing you do is watch a little movie and then after you enter into the museum itself. The current iteration of this museum was opened on October 13th, 2001, and is located at 200 East 7th Street Charlotte North Carolina. The current hours of operation are Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m, Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday noon to 5 p.m. One of the many really cool things they have here is you can actually touch and feel raw cotton. They have cottonseed which is the cotton that you can actually see and then you have the final product which is the Jindo cotton. They even have this fantastic town from the early 1900s that’s built inside the museum. One of the coolest things in this “town” is you can actually go into each individual building, 

Now the cost of the admission is $10 for adults, seniors are $8 and children 6 to 18 are $6 and age 5 and under are free. Now there is a multitude of different discounts and group vouchers and things of that nature so don’t be afraid to ask the admission. Whether a native, newcomer, or visitor to Charlotte Levine Museum of the New South invites you to experience what the New York Times described as a hard-hitting social history of Charlotte.

If you’re in Charlotte, also be sure to visit the Carolinas Aviation Museum as well.
